When you need translation between Korean and English, Soomi Ko and her team are tops. For four years, they ably handled document translation for us in our role as counsel to the lead defendant in In re Korean Ramen Antitrust Litigation, (N.D. Cal.). Soomi Ko and her team readily met what that case presented as every challenge for translators – it was a complex case, with a large volume of documents, requiring high competency and top grade professionalism, but also requiring cost-effectiveness and timely delivery. Their teamwork helped us to smoothly work through the potential documentary evidence in discovery, pre-trial and a five-week jury trial in a set of class actions seeking nearly US$500 million. The case result was a complete defense verdict, after three hours’ jury deliberation. You will be glad if Soomi Ko and her team are on your team.
